Hello again everyone! This is my first attempt at recipe design and I am brewing it up this Saturday so I would love any critiques/improvement ideas that anyone here might have. I feel pretty solid about the grain bill because I got some very useful help here about a week ago, but I would especially appreciate if you see anything wrong with the hops or yeast choices. Thanks for the help!

Note: My BeerSmith didn't have US Golding (what I plan to actually use) so I input Fuggles and changed the name here

7 lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) UK (3.0 SRM) Grain 1 65.1 %
2 lbs 8.0 oz Victory Malt (25.0 SRM) Grain 2 23.3 %
1 lbs Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM) Grain 3 9.3 %
4.0 oz Black (Patent) Malt (500.0 SRM) Grain 4 2.3 %
2.00 oz Golding (US) [4.50 %] - Boil 60.0 min Hop 5 30.5 IBUs
1.00 oz Golding (US) [4.50 %] - Boil 15.0 min Hop 6 7.6 IBUs
1.0 pkg British Ale II (Wyeast Labs #1335) [124.21 ml] Yeast 7 -

Looks good to me. Only critique I would have is calling it a biscuit stout without any biscuit malt in it. But that is really just nit picking to nit pick.

victory malt and biscuit malt are almost exactly the same thing. they're so close most lhbs's have either 1 or the other; almost never both
